Available on premise or in the cloud, our business intelligence tools put actionable information at users’ fingertips. To overcome the limitations of these systems, business intelligence relies on a set of tools that facilitate the processes of extraction, purification, analysis and storage of data, with appropriate speed in order to support the decision making process of the business.
The deployment of any business strategy needs to include a solid change management process, plan, strategy and enforcement/modeling from top management; this is especially true with collaborative BI. Collaborative technology will not make an organization collaborative.
Secara umum Business Intelligence (BI) merupakan sebuah proses untuk melakukan ekstraksi data-data operasional perusahaan dan mengumpulkannya dalam sebuah data warehouse yang selanjutnya diproses menggunakan berbagai analisis statistik dalam proses data mining, sehingga didapat berbagai kecenderungan atau pattern dari data (Choirul, 2006).
From the point of view of information technology, we can say that BI is a set of methodologies, applications and technologies that allow a business to the group and transform the data obtained from structured information systems to do analysis and information generation and improving the process decision-making of the business.
Though the term business intelligence is sometimes a synonym for competitive intelligence (because they both support decision making), BI uses technologies, processes, and applications to analyze mostly internal, structured data and business processes while competitive intelligence gathers, analyzes and disseminates information with a topical focus on company competitors.
